Retro Rubber Challenge #24.....

Hello everyone and happy Sunday: Yesterday my daughter Adriana called me and ask me to make a birthday card for her little 4 year old nephew who likes airplanes, so I thought "oh, no problem" right? Well, it kind of is a problem when the party is in 2 hours!!!!!  She said she forgot to tell me when the invitation came and that it was ok if I couldn't make her a card, "I'll just buy one at the pharmacy"  "What??!!! No way!!" I said, I will make you a card, just let me see if I have an airplane stamp.  Well, I rushed up her to my craft room and found the ONLY airplane stamp I own, it's from Flourishes, (who sadly closed it's doors about 2 years ago) and here is the card I made, that incidentally fits perfectly the TRAVEL theme over at the Retro Rubber challenge blog.
This image is stamped onto Canson water color paper and colored with my SU markers in More Mustard, Cherry Cobbler and Marina Mist, I put a little bit of my silver gel pen on the propeller. I die cut the image and sponged it with Tim Holtz Broken China ink, to create the clouds, I went over the area with a damp aqua painter in a circular motion and pat it with a paper towel to remove the blue ink.
I die cut a bigger circle with a Spellbinders scalloped die and placed the image in that frame with foam adhesive, the sentiment is from Hobby Lobby's $1.00 bin, it's stamped with the same Tim Holtz ink and punched with SU Decorative Label Punch.
So there you have it, a fast card for this little boy, I hope he likes it.
Thank you for visiting, If you have any questions, I'm here to help.
Here is the Retro Rubber banner that inspired this card, till next time, Happy Stamping.
Hugs from Maria.Challenge 24
